Not crazy

March 23rd, 2015 · Comments Off on Not crazy

I have to admit that I’m not crazy about the after-thought heel. I’m also not thrilled with two at a time. Halfway through this pair I swapped them to one at a time.

I just finished the heel of the first one and am fighting the urge to rip the second back and do a normal heel.

I’m getting nice knitting time since I stepped in a pothole and rolled my awesome right ankle. I’ve been off my feet since Thursday 🙁

2015.2

Yup I do still knit socks!

Having decided a few pairs back that two at once isn’t all terrible, I on another pair that way. I didn’t like the heel I had been using so I’m trying something different and new this go around. Would you believe that after all these years of knitting socks that I’ve never done an afterthought heel? Hard to believe I know! I’m finally trying it now. So far so good. That reddish pink row is the placeholder for the heel.

The picture was taken yesterday so I’m a little further along now. Hope to finish up the tubular knitting in the next day or so and then get to the heels. If I like this approach, I might just invest in some semi solids to use for heels and toes 🙂

Another New Year

January 2nd, 2015 · Comments Off on Another New Year

Happy New Year and all that. After having quite a few days off, I’m back to work for a shortened day today.  That means more train knitting while listening to audio books.  Here are the first sighs of the year. These are for Kathryn and is the leftover yarn from my last pair.
